In just a few words These boots are very nice. Although
there is no perfect boot for everyone.
I have 3 pairs (what a spend-thift!). I was afraid they would quit making them. I have learned that about buying stuff, mainly boots/shoes. Sooner or later they wiil stop making it even if it is the perfect pair. So get any extra pair. Danner stopped making this boot, Too Bad. But they still make good stuff even if most is from China these days. They also stopped making the Rainforest boot too, only to bring it back a few years later.
